My name is Jen, I'm 18 years old. About a year ago I started having breakdowns and major anxiety issues that started happening for no apparent reason. The doctor evaluated me and said I had depression. I was lost and angry because there was no reason as to why I was feeling this way. But I have always felt that I had something special to offer other people and I feel I can be very helpful in situations others find extremely difficult. Even if I haven't been in a certain situation others have, I can understand them very well and my opinion has always helped them in a good way and they feel better.
I was just recently informed by a psychic that I'm empathetic and I also have an old soul. It just clicked and I knew that's exactly what my depression was from being empathetic. Doing research, I found out that empaths can suffer from depression by not being able to manage all of the energies they are receiving. I have always been sensitive seeing other people struggle in their daily lives sometimes I can't help but cry for them. I feel more sensitive for my dad than anyone. Around him I'm sad and feel helpless. He and my mom got a divorce when I was 12 years old, he cheated on her. Every time I get home from being with my dad I can be very angry and take it out on my mom and brother and cry for no reason. I feel as if there is something I have to do but don't have the power or materials to accomplish the task.
If I meet a person or someone catches my eye on the corner I can get a pretty good idea of what they are like and what there background is. I love meeting new people but there are always the times I meet someone I just don't like or have a bad feeling about them. When the phone rings without expecting a call or looking at caller I know who is calling. I try to go with my first instinct with everything because it's always right. I would just like more knowledge about old souls and empaths. Any good websites you know about? Anything helps! Thanks!
